Dimmed lights, somber tributes on Vegas shooting anniversary
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The marquees on the glimmering Las Vegas Strip dimmed their lights for three minutes Monday night as officials slowly read the 58 names of the people killed one year earlier in the country's deadliest mass shooting in modern history.
The names of the slain were recited before a silent crowd punctuated by sobs shortly after 10:05 p.m., nearly the exact time that a gunman in a tower suite at the Mandalay Bay casino-resort opened fire on the crowd of 22,000.

Las Vegas shooting survivor, wife learning to live with fear
BONNEY LAKE, Wash. (AP) — Every time Chris Gilman leaves her home at the foot of Washington's Mount Rainier, she fights the gnawing urge to turn around and check that someone isn't about to shoot her.
Sometimes she wins the battle. Sometimes she loses.
For Route 91 survivors, ‘Country Strong’ means community
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — They have the date 10-1-2017 tattooed on their bodies and have memorial walls of pictures in their homes. One woman made a bracelet out of her Route 91 Harvest festival wristband, while many others can be spotted at concerts wearing shirts that say "survivor." They fly flags from their RVs and have stickers on their cars.

AP: No widespread changes in gun laws after recent shootings

Garden provides place to mourn Las Vegas shooting victims
LAS VEGAS (AP) — An image of Angelica Cervantes' son donning a black-and-yellow security guard T-shirt is one of dozens of smiling photos tacked to walls in a Las Vegas garden decorated with ribbons, cowboy boots, horseshoes and rubber bracelets.
Cervantes visits every other week to gaze at the photo that has withstood the desert sun for almost a year, and to ask her son, Erick Silva, to watch over her, his stepfather and his siblings. "Cuidanos," she begs him, sometimes tearfully.
